I am the incoming president of UFVA, and I'm excited to serve as president in an organization that I have loved for over 20 years. I look forward to working with all of you as we take the University Film and Video Association into a bright future!
My first order of business is to offer a heartfelt thank you to Francisco Menendez, who served as president from 2014-2016. In his role, he took on the unprecedented task of leading the organization AND hosting the 70th annual conference, CONTENT CREATION IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY, this past August at Green Valley Ranch in Henderson, Nevada, where we celebrated over a century of cinema while exploring cutting-edge developments in image production, exhibition, and teaching.
California State University Los Angeles will be hosting our 71st annual conference in 2017. Located fifteen minutes east of downtown Los Angeles, and thirty minutes from Hollywood, CSULA is one of the most culturally diverse campuses in the United States. The main conference dates will be July 30th through August 2nd (Sunday through Wednesday) 2017, with pre-conference activities on July 28th and 29th. The conference theme is MEDIA DIVERSITY: INCLUSION AND CONVERGENCE.

Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season, and we look forward to seeing all of you at California State University Los Angeles in July of next year!
UFVA President 2016-2018
